Hi!

I'm new with cake decorating. Took Courses 1-3 at the end of last year, and have made 6 cakes since then. My sink has not clogged, but whenever I clean beaters, spatulas, bowls, tips, etc I'm afraid it won't be long. Am I worrying about nothing? Are there any "preemptive strikes" I can do? I use Dawn detergent. I'm probably being silly, but thank you for responding.

Well of course the shortening can clog the sink. All i do is when my drains start getting a bit sluggish is to run some drain O down them.

I scrape as much of the shortening and icing off the bowls, beaters, and spatulas as I can before I wash. I use Dawn and the hottest water I can stand to wash the items. Now and again I run hot vinegar down the drain and when all else fails, there is Liquid Plumber and Drain-o.

Thank you so much! Sounds like it is not as big a problem as I thought it would be!
